Across the globe, our world-class innovative, trusted and reliable energy services have made a difference to societies and our shareholders.

Providing supplemental power in times of low rain, and helping monetize a stranded gas reserve
Stabilising the Omani power grid with 24 MW with only 96 hours to install, commission and supply electricity
Overcoming social, political and environmental obstacles to construct in only 23 days a power plant that supplied more than half a million people with reliable power
Corporate Social Responsibility

In 2015, we embarked on a mission to help resolve the power challenges of Cameroon’s economic center and most populous city, Douala.

We transferred reliable power through our multi-megawatt gas power plants, and technical knowledge and engineering best-practices to local technicians by hiring and training them, and letting them assume key roles at our sites.

We believe that empowering locals through education, so they are able to actively participate in the development of their country’s power industry, will perpetuate the economic and social progress promoted by our integrated energy solutions.

The program proved beneficial to the more than 2,500,000 million residents and businesses & industries in Douala.

Thanks to the innovative learning strategies employed in the program, the local technician participants are already able to perform key operation and maintenance procedures at site, vital in ensuring the reliable supply of electricity to the entire city. 

Owing to their effort, the power supply deficiency in Douala is gradually being eliminated, dramatically reducing the frequency of load shedding and interruption in industrial operations, as attested by utility provider Eneo.
